39. I see that in addition to the 28 percenters many here also bought the Reich wing
bullshit on Obama.

This guy is just the first step in the right direction. There is no way the kind of politician many want would ever get elected today. It will take an Obama and at least another half step to slowly move the country to the left to the point where a true leftist would be viable, if then.

This is the US not the EU. Obama nor even the Clintons are right of the current American center. Hell, for some most on DU aren't "left" enough (including myself at times) and it bewilders me to no end that people can't grasp that about everyone on here is far left compared to most of the population. If DUers are "rightest" or "center right" than what kind of politics do you think Joe and Jane Blow off the street have?

It blows me away that so many are under the impression that at least a generation's evils can be undone in a few weeks or even more realistically a term or two.
